MUSA patch panels are the standard means of patching video signals. All units are 19 inch rack mountable, 2U high and finished in Dawn Mist semi-gloss paint. Each panel is equipped with MUSA to BNC adaptors. A single piece of extruded aluminium forms a rigid front panel. This supports a semi-rigid, white ABS sub-panel on which the MUSA to BNC adaptors are mounted. The sub-panel allows all adaptors to be electrically isolated from each other and the front panel assembly. All panel assemblies are equipped with two designation strips and cable strain relief bars. All MUSA connectors have Silver Plated centre pins and bodies.
Serial Digital Signals
As a result of extensive research by several independent television companies, we have redesigned the style of MUSA to BNC adaptors that we use in panel assemblies. The adaptor is manufactured of the same materials but incorporates a one piece centre pin, that allows the adaptor to have a shorter overall length, which reduces the possibility of signal reflections. These small changes have enhanced the capability of the MUSA connector to pass serial digital signals. The adaptors are fully compatible with the original types of MUSAconnectors, U links and patch cords.
